MuseTV Presents: Fall Collection Haul

‘ello there!

I was lucky enough to get a delightful little package in the mail of which contained the Fall Japanese goodies!

I did a video blog of ‘em for you guys! I’ve added in pics as well and will be doing reviews and Face of the Days pics very soon!

MuseTV Presents: Fall Collection Haul:

Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures icon sad I normally take photos with my trusty Kodak DX6490. I decided that I’d go with cute and super portable so I purchased a Sony Cyber Shot T20 this past week! I was excited to have a smaller cam to use for taking pics for my blog and just generally toting around for small shots here and there!

My DX6490 is only 4MP’s has a virtually no ISO so the T20 was quite appealing at 8MP with an obscene ISO, HD output, onscreen editing, and a tons of other bells and whistles.

Upon getting it in the mail I flipped out at how cute it was. I proceeded to try some Face of the Day pics plus some additional variety, random shots and………it’s crap. I strongly suggest not bothering! I’ve just now finished wrapping it up and it’s going right back for a full return! I am astounded at the crap quality of the pics! Everything had a weird orange tinge too it plus the ISO had a setting of 300 because anything more would cause some mega crap quality photos!

Do tell me whatcha think of these pics taken with the cybershot as compared to my older pics in my blog taken with my trusty kodak!

I’ve been sorely tempted to purchase a Nikon D40 but can’t justify the cost for a hobbyist like myself. It’d be far different if I had a family with children and such but just to purchase the D40 for hobby shots of cosmetics, some vacation photos, and random shots seems just a silly purchase really! I adore photography but the general idea of the D40 seems a spoiled indulgence on my part!

Anyway!

About the Muse Profile

Who is this Muse girl anyway? 

Picture+744 400x300

Around the Internet I’m simply known as the Muse. A Muse of makeup maybe..the Muse in Musings perhaps? 

Could be anything.

Who am I really?

I’m just an average, everyday, general cosmetic junkie that plans to take over the world. You can join me and my minions on our quest for cosmetic nirvana by reading my uber awesome, fabulous blog!

In all seriousness……….

I’m a 30 year old, native New Yorker. Born, Bred, and Raised in this little city (but traveled far from home on many a fine occasion seeking new and exciting beauty products from distant lands…it’s true just check my blog for reviews on products you may have never heard of!).

Contrary to popular belief I do not work in the fashion or cosmetic industry, far from it.

When I’m not moonlighting as the Editor here at Musings (Wow! Editor sounds so bloody important doesn’t it?) I have a real job, in the real world as an Insurance Broker, underwriting commercial and personal policies. I own and operate my own office with my older sister and together we are a legend in our own minds (I’m positive other people think we are legendary as well but I haven’t met one yet! If I do I’ll let you know!).

I also enjoy pina coladas and getting caught in the rain….

When I’m not posting tons of reviews, testing new products, and playing around in the comment box with my awesome readers you can find me at some high end counter looking for the next awesome cosmetic find.

I’m also a geek and come with all the excess baggage geeks come with such as attending crazy conventions, playing stupid amounts of WoW, reading manga, and watching Star Trek and Doctor Who reruns.

In my spare time I love shopping, eating out, going to the movies, and enjoying good times with my friends (Hey, I live in the city that never sleeps! We got plenty of awesome entertainment options here!).

I’m a huge lover of literature, indie and foreign films and could possibly be more passionate about these than cosmetics. Whoa.

I adore traveling and have been to many great and exotic places! I’m a big lover of Japanese, Korean, and British popular culture.

Ok, ok enough about me…I feel like I’m on a dating site here….

Something you’re dying to know about little, old, boring me?

E-mail or comment! I’ll happily provide the deets!
